I need HELP!!!

Sup peeps,

well i need help; ever since i got my dc sports tcs2 catback, it has been hitting my Progress rear anti-sway bar. So i had to replace it with my OEM sway which sucks compeltly in handling... Anyways do you guys have any ideas as to how i can get the exhaust to stop hitting the sway bar or somehow reduce the noise from the exhaust hitting the bar?

Thanks,

Injen

I just lowered my sway bar as low as it would go.. BTW I got greys endlinks. But it still hits.. I think the only way to stop it would be to get the hangers raised, or bend the exhaust pipe.

thermotec exhaust wrap. Put some where it hits. I'll even send you some in an envelope for a few bucks if you want.

ya i wouldn't do that. Actaully after driving on some rough roads, i was surprised that one hanger had come loose on its own and was barely hangin on. At least if one goes you have the other. You could do zipties as a safer fix to raise it up so you have the hangers there in case they fail.

actually i tried zipties lol, i thought it was a stupid idea but at least i didnt think of it alone...

I have been talking to R1Style and i think we are just gonna swap my 22mm bar and his 19mm bar. Think i will have problems out of the 19mm?
